🎉 The fediverse is 12 years old, so we decided to celebrate (slightly late) by doing an alpha release.
You can check it out at https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/releases, make sure to read what is broken and why, so that we keep the bug reports to things we don't know about and that are under our control.
Tell us what you think!
🎉 Happy 12th Birthday, #Fediverse
It's great that you don't put all your eggs in one basket ;) Stay cool.

✔ idea to not let this day pass unnoticed - by @titi
Wow. A really nice #pixelfed app is coming!
Our CI can't run on the GitLab shared runners (Android VM needs hardware acceleration enabled), and my poor little home server can only do one build at once (and often we have 10 builds in the queue since we end up working at the same time).
Would someone be able to run a GitLab runner on their server or PC? This would help us reduce wait times when working on PRs.
Thanks all for the very impressive welcome, and thanks to the people who already translated the app into 3 other languages 😱. I love the fediverse!
We will do an alpha release soon. Not giving any dates, because that will just bite me when we don't meet the deadline, but soon ™️
If you want to help with translation, that can already be done on https://weblate.pixeldroid.org, although a lot of strings are not translatable yet (PR fixing that in the works)
I took some time to make a quick video of our upcoming Pixelfed Android client, we will make an alpha release soon ™️
You can of course already go take a look at the source code and compile it for yourself, for now hosted on GitHub but that will change soon: https://github.com/H-PixelDroid/PixelDroid/
Still a lot of work to be done, but it's slowly getting there :)
